Bella Vista Public School

Dharug Country / Bella Vista
NSW Department of Education

The design for Bella Vista includes learning spaces based on new educational concepts for Future Focused Learning for 1000 students. The school provides forty Home Bases including three special needs facilities. These innovative Home Bases are flexible spaces adaptable for a range of educational programmes and strategies. The challenge for the interior was to create a sense of defined smaller spaces with very few walls. This was achieved by implementing a variety of furniture settings and using the ceiling finishes and lighting to define learning zones.
